Most sailing takes place under the auspices of the Axe Yacht Club. Members undertake a wide range of sailing activities including racing, cruising, dinghy sailing and day boating. The slipway is not open to non-members.
Sailing vessels intended on visiting should familiarise themselves with Harbour Pilotage to ensure safe passage through and round the harbour entrance, upon where there is a sharp turn to the west, following the line of the harbour wall.
The Axe Yacht Club mooring basin with pontoons is situated just below the fixed bridge to port. Fishing vessels berth to starboard against the quay. The Axe Yacht Club landing pontoon is located to port immediately south of the bridge where a temporary berth can be found; but take care to avoid being swept onto the bridge. All berths in the harbour dry out.
Sailing vessels should familiarise themselves with the mandatory and advisory speed restrictions in the area.
If you find yourself in an emergency situation or spot someone else in trouble, you should call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard. How to call for Help at Sea
